Sorry most of us don't live in a trailer park.

I'm guessing you haven't made time to meet people you judge to be inferior or don't have as much money as you.

Some of the kindness and most caring people I have encountered in my life have or do live in a trailer park.

If you can't understand people, why should anyone listen to your opinions? They shouldn't.

Don't take it serious, it's just topix....libs attack cons, and cons attack libs, and life goes on. They accuse me of living in a single wide often, but I have a double wide, sitting right by the retention pond, the breeze coming off the water is very relaxing, I like to sit on my cinder block porch and sip a cool one from the fridge right there on the porch, and listen to the dogs playing under the porch.

The same "economists" that supported ARRA to begin with? Of COURSE they still support it, in spite of the evidence
<quoted text>
Except that ARRA has not met a single thing that it was propounded to do. Hopw could it have "worked" if it did not? At all? For that matter, unemployment rose, when it was supposed to drop. GDP dropped, when it was supposed to rise. WHERE did it work, at ALL?
Fact check: GDP began to drop in 2008. GDP growth bottomed out in 4th quarter 2008 at -8.9%. Obama signed the ARRA in Feb. 2009, and the GDP decreased at a slower rate in the 1st and 2nd quarters of 2009, and has been growing since the 3rd quarter 2009 (see link below). So the facts are that unemployment is down and GDP is up. The recovery has been slow, but retutning to the Republican policies that got us into the recession would bring it to a screeching halt.

I suppose you're right....
My brother has a single, but he let me attach a shed to it until I get back on my feet. Even now I'm underwater with my shed loan, but I think Obama's new program will allow me to refinance. I'd like to get my payment down to $25 a month, but my debt to income ratio is not good. We'll see.

Easy solution to your problem, get in a time machine and see if you can go back to the 1920's, don't forget to take your pet duck.

The mediaElite is in trouble because the public knows that the numbers are 'creative', and generated by the WestWing.

The Media is in tatters I've been in a wage freeze for 8 years. Lowered work hours no 401K forced no pay furloughs. The print industry is talking about going paperless. No wonder China and India's economy is booming. That's where all the jobs went.

The job situation could and would get back on track for America if they would only bring all the jobs they shipped overseas which Includes China and India and other countries. In my humble opinion it would probably solve most of the country's economic woes if the population was put back to work. People would have more money to spend. Secondly, and this one I think is impossible, clean up the corruption in Washington and represent the people in an honest respectful way. At present this seems to be lacking in American politics. What happened to "government of the people, for the people, by the people" and equal opportunity for everyone? BRING THE JOBS BACK HOME! Watch the economy turn around then.

Obama is providing incentives for the companies to bring the jobs back home but to the GOP that is NOT FREE Market.
.
He is also proposing taxing the companies more that ship their jobs overseas but the GOP said that is NOT FREE Market.

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Give a man a welfare check, a free cell phone with free monthly minutes, food stamps, section 8 housing, a forty ounce malt liquor, a crack pipe and some Air Jordan's and he votes Democratic for a lifetime.

Did you go to college? Do you work in corporate America?
A liberal arts degree from a respected college will open countless doors in the private sector. Very few people in non-specialized fields have degrees in the fields they work in.
Dumb answer. College students without jobs is in the News everyday. America doesn't need more high paid teachers looking for Tenure and big Pensions/Benefits that Private industry does not offer. Lib. Arts are not n demand just like all of the other degrees which develop NO SKILLS. Accounting--Engineer--Software Developer--those are in demand. Lib. Arts and all of the "can't find a job degrees" end you up in an Occupy Movement Park.
